I had a fully working iTunes library, the .itl on my MBP, and music in my organised folders on my NAS share. This setup I would like to keep as iTunes manages my iPod but nothing else. So I don't need to have my music local, and I don't need the entire itunes stuff (itl, xml etc) on the nas.
I've bought a new NAS and moved the files across, unfortunately the path is different. It was \NAS\media\music and now its \NAS\music.
I thought I could resolve this by altering the XML, deleting the .itl and importing the XML, but a) this is seems slower than it should be, and b) failed to import everything, one playlist was half empty.
Is there another way? Or something else?
I'm using Synology DS414play, and its currently SMB shared and not AFP or NFS.
